Posted by Mikers On November - 14 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

239bc866229334a97f95877bc29cedf4_pcMaintaining its position at the forefront of mobile music apps, KORG now offers you a new style of performance and production with Korg Module for iPad. Ideal for performance and music production, KORG Module is a high-quality sound module app for iPad that contains a sound library over 1 GB. If you have an external MIDI keyboard and an iPad, you can play studio-quality keyboard and grand piano sounds anywhere. You can also use the sounds of KORG Module for the KORG Gadget music production app.

KORG Module has five dedicated sound engines, providing a number of high-quality sounds that can be played back on your iPad using the “NATIVE ENGINE”. These engines feature technology that was developed for KORG’s historic line of workstations and synthesizers including: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Clav, Organ, and Multi. Each display has carefully selected parameters, making it convenient and easy to adjust the sounds. Once you experience the quality of the sounds being produced from the slim body of your iPad, you’ll agree that KORG Module is radically different than anything else currently on the market.

For a full rundown on what to expect from this upcoming music app, check the Korg website – http://www.korg.com/us/products/software/korg_module_for_ipad/

Auxy

Posted by Mikers On November - 8 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (2)Complex user interfaces and a bewildering array of options can often get in the way of some simple good old fashion groove making. That’s the takeaway from this latest app, thanks to the clean UI and stripped back options that will have you making beats and hooks in no time, even if you’re new to the whole thing! Of course, Auxy is not a fully fledged customisable drum and synth workstation, but when all you want is something to whip up a quick groove, this is one app hard to look past.

Check out the video for an example of how quick and easy it can be….

Introducing Wej

Posted by Mikers On October - 27 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

Retronyms_WejThe creative team behind the music apps,  iProphet, iMini, and the killer beat maker, iMPC Pro, Retronyms, has been busy at work a unique piece of hardware designed for making life easier when playing and performing music on your iPad. It’s simply called, Wej

Utilising Apple’s new Bluetooth LE MIDI functionality, you’ll be able to plug in any USB MIDI controller into the Wej, and supported music apps can be played wirelessly.

Wej has even been designed to place your iPad on, thanks to its angled, silcon based surface which is non slip. Best of all, Wej can power all connected USB devices and even recharge an iOS device when connected via USB.

Not sure I’m won on the built in light show that Wej also features, but each to their own I guess. (I’m sure it can be turned off!)

There’s a couple of week’s still left to pre order a Wej, so if you’re interested head to this site – http://preorder.retronyms.com/

Here’s a video on Wej:

iProphet

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

arturia-iprophet-uiiProphet recreates the unique sound of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synthesizer. The Prophet VS’s rareness and classic digital sound make it a mainstay for those who can find them and a seemingly out or reach dream for those who cannot. The sound is purely classic crisp digital sound that easily stands on its own, but at the same time is the perfect compliment to the sound of analog synthesizers. It brings the crystaline vintage sound of four digital oscillators and allows sculpting them using a creamy & warm multimode filter. You can morph the sound of the 4 oscillators using the joystick or the vector mode and the vector envelope.

The iProphet is great for evolving pads, sharp leads and super punchy digital bass sounds and comes with over 500 presets created by some of todays best sound designers. You can also swap presets between iProphet and Arturia’s Prophet V synthesizer which allows you to work on the iPAD and finish in the DAW of your choice.

iProphet supports Core MIDI, interapp-audio as well as Audiobus technologies for perfect integration.

iProphet is also a Tabletop Ready app. You can use it exclusively or along side your favorite Tabletop instruments.

iSymphonic Orchestra

Posted by Mikers On August - 19 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (11)

This one isn’t exactly the cheapest music making app around, but if the teaser video below is any indication of the on board sounds, then this is your one-stop shop for an authentic sounding orchestra!

The ultimate orchestra sound app for sophisticated musicians, directed by Kurt Ader, designed as professional sound module for your iPad by connecting an external MIDI keyboard, using the Apple USB camera adapter or another adapter supported by Apple.¹

Listen to the demo video on our product website!

This app supports Apple’s “Inter-App Audio” System (requires iOS 7 or higher) and the “JACK Audio Connection Kit” (up to iOS 6.1.3) for audio & MIDI connections from/to other audio apps!

iSymphonic Orchestra was designed with the goal to deliver you superb, extremely realistic and stunning orchestra sounds, instantly with the first key being pressed by you on your MIDI keyboard. Just select a sound and you are ready for your live performance or for a boost of creativity while composing new songs. The sounds used in this app were explicitly recorded to fulfill these requirements and involved several months of recording and post processing under supervision of Kurt Ader and included a variety of innovative, new recording techniques. So far these sounds were only available to very few, famous movie composers. Now they are finally available for the first time to everybody. The supreme quality of these sounds, combined with the unique way they were recorded and assembled, gives us confidence that you haven’t heard anything comparable as of to date, even not on Mac or PC.

Sounds:
- 1. Orchestra Strings Spiccato & Legato
- 2. Orchestra Strings Slow 1
- 3. Chamber Arco Strings
- 4. Legato Orchestra Strings 1
- 5. Full Sordino Strings 1
- 6. Legato Orchestra
- 7. Staccato Orchestra 1
- 8. Staccato Orchestra 2
- 9. Tremolo Orchestra
- 10. Pizzicato Strings

General Features:
- Low latency disk streaming.
- Polyphony up to 140 stereo voices.²
- Configurable audio latency down to 5 ms.
- Integrated effects with 18 presets.
- 16 parts.
- MIDI velocity response curve editor to fine tune the feeling of your MIDI keyboard.
- App can keep running in the background, so you can play on your keyboard while e.g. using Safari or another app to display scores or surfing the Internet.
- Hermode Tuning: Makes the sound more brilliant by controlling the pitch of the notes in multivoiced music to better frequency ratios than with fixed tuning. This dynamic tuning imitates the tuning behavior of well educated musicians of i.e. orchestras and choirs.
- Supports Apple’s “IAA” system for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (iOS 7 or higher).
- Supports “JACK Audio Connection Kit” for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (up to iOS 6.1.3).
- Virtual on-screen piano keyboard with velocity support, scalable & scrollable.

MIDI Player / Recorder:
- Record, save and load your songs in standard MIDI file format.
- Unlimited amount of tracks.
- Configurable target MIDI channel per track.
- Unlimited recording and playback length.
- Download or upload MIDI files with iTunes.
- Load your favorite songs as MIDI files from the Internet, and watch at the virtual keyboard how to play it.
- Use the “Tempo Zoom” dial knob to i.e. slow down playback at any time and learn your favorite songs more easily.

screen480x480A new music making app from the team at Twisted Electrons has landed, this time in the shape of a virtual analogue synth. Not much in the way of detailed features from the app store description. But going by the screenshots it features a Ploy-Mod section, LFO, dual oscillators, plus filter and amplifier sections.

For a demo of the sounds, check out the video
